Woodlot Management

We live on 18 acres, of which approximately 15 acres are woodland. We have a mixture of tree species in our woodlot, including Douglas Fir, Big Leaf Maple, Pacific Madrone, and Western Red Cedar. Our hope is to manage this woodland for health and sustainable harvest for firewood and lumber.

We built our log home using trees harvested from this land, later we had a custom miller mill the lumber to build our barn using trees from the property. We are excited to have more time in the coming years to actively manage the woodlot & to do much more milling with our portable Wood-Mizer sawmill . We have plans for removing invasive species, opening the understory to promote the growth of wildflowers and other species, and thinning to allow trees to grow to full, mature sizes.
